An Entertaining Reminiscence Session for Seniors


Dave says -

As our thoughts turn to the imminent arrival of Summer, I was delighted to close my book last year with cheques to our deserving chosen charities . . . . . . . .

 The Cystic Fibrosis Trust for £560.

(Our grand total is now£26,354'40)


Alzheimer Scotland for £280.

(Our grand total is now £11,460) 

* * * * * * * * 

 Thank you to Local Councils across Central Scotland, also Social Groups, Day Centres, Seniors' Clubs, and Residential Care Homes. Your support through the years has enabled me to send  donations totalling


to our two chosen charities

* * * * * * * * *

 My first outing of this year was to join the seniors group at Motherwell Heritage Centre. Postponed due to Covid restrictions a couple of years ago. We certainly made up for lost time as we recalled together, how we used to live back in the 50's 60's and 70's . Thank you for a brilliant afternoon, and your generous donation on the day which will  be added to our first donation of 2023 to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Alzheimer Scotland.

A brief reflection on 2022  . . .

 It was a 'full house' at the Fenwick Hotel's spacious function suite when I joined 120 members of Ayrshire on their annual S.W.I. Ladies Day meeting to recall our childhood and teenage years back in the 50's 60's and 70's.

Thank you, 'Girls' for your warm welcome and, of course, your kind donation which I have included in our donations to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Alzheimer Scotland. 

* * * * * * * * 

Thanks also to the enthusiastic 'Seniors' at St. Dominics in Bishopbriggs (near Glasgow). Together with the old favourites, you clearly some of the new additions to 'YESTERDAY ONCE MORE', during my third visit to your club in the Church hall. 


A really big ‘Thank you' to residents, and friends, who joined me at the stunning, recently opened, 'Balmoral by Northcare'  luxury retirement suites in Giffnock (Glasgow). Thank you also for your invitation to pay a return visit -  maybe best to hide those cakes next time!

* * * * * * * *

Travelling to present my shows in the West of Scotland, the beautiful Clyde Valley was my destination during the Summer of 2022 to meet the lively ladies at St Johns in Carluke.

 Also recently, some of my own teenage memories were stirred when I parked up on the site of the original Renfrew Airport  (Now a Tesco Store).  

  Following the opening of the new City Airport, by Queen Elizabeth 11 in 1966, flights were transferred to Glasgow International, a short distance away.

My destination in Renfrew was originally home to a Social Club related to Airport staff. Now, the friendly members of the local Senior Citizens Club meet in the building just across the road from the old Terminal.

 * * * * * * * * 

    Thank you folks for your very warm welcome and of course your kind donations which have been gifted to our chosen charities.  

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

  I'm really looking forward to meeting new audiences, and some 'old friends' during 2023.

 So, my booking line is open and my diary is already filling up for Summer and Autumn 2023.

From my interaction with hundreds of 'seniors' at my presentations across the West of Scotland, I know how much you really enjoy recalling how we used to live back in the 50's, 60's and 70's and the companionship you gain in the company of friends, old and new, at your regular club and group meetings


AND - NEW FOR 2023

Was 1980 really 43 years ago?

With this in mind, I've now included some memorable moments from the 70's & 80's in an exciting new presentation available in addition to our ever popular 50's, 60's show. And it's easy to make your choice of presentation, just let me know on the day.

And thank you, as always, for your very kind donations at our presentations across the West of Scotland. 


Back in March 2022 a surprise phone call from a listener back in my radio & television days, resulted in a welcome extra 'windfall' for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.


Following the closure of the Venture Sports Club in Cumbernauld, management spokesperson, Drew R​aeside, contacted me to find out more about the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Drew was aware that I had been fundraising with my 'Yesterday Once More' reminiscence presentations and donating money to the Trust for a number of years and he wished to find out more about the disease and the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. 

With the closure of the Cumbernauld based Venture Club, it was decided within the group that surplus funds from the Club should be donated to selected charities.

I was happy, of course, to point Drew in the right direction. Click here to view my email reply to Drew, and his colleagues at Cumbernauld Venture Sports Club. 

With your help, we have now donated

an incredible *£37,814.40

to our chosen charities.

* Includes £594.40 kindly donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust via 'Yesterday Once More'. 

(See above).

Just call me now to find out more about our

 'Yesterday Once More' presentations.

Sit back, relax and share your own special memories when you join retired popular radio and television presenter Dave Marshall as he takes you on a fascinating, light hearted, trip back to your childhood and teenage years.

Notes From Dave's Diary

It's always rewarding to learn, just how much the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Alzheimer Scotland really do value our regular donations".

'Yesterday Once More'

September 2019

With the Strathaven postcode in my 'Tom-Tom' and my windscreen wipers set at 'full speed, Trinity Parish Church was my destination to join the 'Girls' from the Guild at their first meeting of the new winter season.

The weather outside was quickly forgotten as, together, we turned back the clock to remember growing up in the 50's and 60's. The ladies were in great form ((and voice) and I thank you all for your generous donation which will be included in our next cheques to further the work of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Alzheimer Scotland. 

Thanks also to the ladies of Loans, in Ayrshire, for a

warm welcome and a kind donation which will

certainly benefit our chosen charities.

Clearly a good time was had by all - thanks also to

Janette and Babs for taking time to drop me a line....

May 2019

Undeterred by heavy rain, an enthusiastic crowd

joined me to remember 'Yesterday Once More' at the

stunning, refurbished Carswell Centre just ahead of

2019 Eaglesham Village Fair on Saturday 1st June.

Our presentation is all about remembering how we used to live in years gone by and you can imagine my surprise when I was shown a photograph, taken in 1982, (during my days on Radio Clyde) when I opened the Eaglesham Fair and crowned the Fair Queen almost 40 years ago.

It was fun chatting with so many smiling villagers after the show and so rewarding to receive a text message from 'twenty something' Ally after the show.

Thanks Ally. I'm so glad Grandpa enjoyed the show although clearly the imminent introduction of 5G communication won't make a great deal of difference to his life! 

Thanks to my neighbours in our village and Eaglesham Fair Committee for their hospitality and assistance on the day. Thanks also to everyone who contributed to the amazing £268.41 we collected on the day.

At the request of the Committee, ALL of this cash has been passed to our chosen charities.

And Dave’s was in Burn's Country Where the ‘Girls 'at St Columba Church Guild in Ayr clearly enjoyed a great night remembering 'Yesterday Once More''

Hi Dave

On behalf of the ladies of Ayr St Columba Guild, I would like to thank you for coming along last night and giving up of your time and what a wonderful evening it was. Everyone of these ladies enjoyed every minute of your Yesterday once More and when I looked around the hall they were laughing and singing along. It was indeed a tonic!

It’s a wonderful thing that you do and it is amazing the amount of money you have raised for your chosen charities. I always think it is good to give something back.

I mentioned to my sister about you coming to our Guild and she said you were going to her Ladies Fellowship in Cumnock so she will welcome you there, she is the President.

Thank you again, Dave, for your most entertaining evening and I have had a request ‘could we not have that every week’. I hope you enjoyed being with us as much as we enjoyed having you.

Best wishes to you in the future.

Retirement group, Ayr.

Hi Dave

Once again, many thanks for coming to Ayr (Town Hall) to make your presentation to our members last Tuesday.

The feedback has been excellent with many members having made a point of feeding back to me how enjoyable your input was – the memories invoked the joining in with the singing of songs that they remembered. Every member that I have spoken to, who was at the meeting, commented on what an excellent afternoon’s entertainment you had given them.

All of the positive feedback makes me all the more disappointed that I had to miss your talk due to a hospital appointment I had to attend.

Once again, many thanks. I am sure that at some time in the not too distant future I may be contacting you for a further return visit - at the request of our members.

Kind regards

Hi Dave,

Just to say "thanks again" for a wonderful presentation of "Yesterday

Once More" Everyone enjoyed the evening and it was great to see everyone interacting with you. There was a smile on everyone's face at the end of the evening.

It's so good to see everyone feeling happy.

It would be great to have you back in the future. Please go on doing this for as long as you are able to. It's great entertainment and the charities you support must be thrilled with your fund raising.

Thanks again Dave, take care

God bless,

What can I say!

Once again Dave your show has shone masses of glorious bright rays of sunshine throughout the whole development this morning; Everyone is buzzing with the pleasant positive excitable chat that your show inevitably elicits; about the wonderful day they had at Yesterdays ‘Big Lunch’.

There’s not a prescription that lifts the mood or injects the health and well being your show provides.

Thanks you never seems enough.

It was marvellous.

Oh And I loved it too – albeit I’m much to young to remember any of the ‘yesterdays once more’.

Thanks again. from Brenda - Manager

Dave says -

" These days we're always encouraged to look ahead and look to the future, but for those of us of a certain age, it's nice sometimes to look back.

I've been astounded by the success of 'Yesterday Once More' here in the West of Scotland and I love meeting many of my listeners from the last 40 years."

I'll take you behind the scenes as I turn the clock back to those pioneering days in the early 70's when Radio Clyde launched as one of the U.K 's first Independent Local Radio stations.

Within months of going on air, on 31st December 1973, we achieved an audience, in our broadcast area, greater that the combined total for BBC Radios one, two, three and four, to become Britain's most successful commercial radio station.

Join me as we relax together for an hour or so, to reminiscence about my 40 years on the radio, and our enviable list of celebrity studio guests.

Prepare to be transported back to your childhood and teenage years in the 50' 60's & 70's"
